101 years ago a huge explosion occured over Tunguska, the blast causing devastation over 2,000 square kilometers and destroying 80 million trees with a force greater than that of 1,000 nuclear bombs.
The Tunguska Explosion, presumably caused by a comet, is the greatest space catastrophe humankind has ever witnessed. Even a century later, the Siberian blast still attracts scientists who hope to unveil its mystery.

That was Planet X.And the Nibiruans on the planet that tried to escape the demise of the planet all but one almost escaped and that one crashed at Roswell. We lost contact after that. Where is your evidence?

My favorite is that it was caused by Tesla and his testing of the transmission of wireless energy.

I agree. Sometimes it best to leave such things as a mystery. you're entitled to your own opinion, but i don't see why leaving this a mystery is best for us.

What could have happened was in their use of the HAARP device, they miscalculated the exit point out of the atmosphere and the concentrated beam of high frequency bounced off of the ionosphere back down to the earth at that point.

if it is part of a comet tail, is it possible that this catastrophe will happen again? i hope they have plans of how to prevent it.

There was no impact crater found That is correct. It appears whatever cause the explosion, occured in mid-air. Although, some believe a piece of the object crashed on the surface near by and became what we know as Lake Cheko. However, these are only speculations.

There was no impact crater found indeed, but the facts are, there is an explosion and it definitely comes from outer space.

indeed, but the facts are, there is an explosion and it definitely comes from outer space. I am sorry but the titles preview sounds so funny on this story. 101 years ago a huge explosion occured over Tunguska, the blast causing devastation over 2,000 square kilometers and destroying 80 million trees with a force greater than that of 1,000 nuclear bombs. Oh no! 80 million trees destroyed!!! They could not be saved! PANIC STATIONS!
